another vote for the adjective "correct"
The reason that some speakers might choose 'correct' over 'right' has to to with semantics, meaning, or rather contextual meaning: what sounds "right" to me, for example, may not sound "right" to someone else. The word 'correct' on the other hand has a sense of authority to it; i.e., what the teacher or grammar deems as "right".
Having said that, given the "context" (e.g., a test situation), the assumption or pragmatics of the language is that 'right' means 'correct', and hence the validity of either or being a valid choice for the example sentences given in post #1.
